My vet wants to do my pups rabies shot at 16 weeks. My daughters vet said her pup will get his shot when the baby canine teeth come out, at around 6 months.
Is there a preferred age for the first rabies shot ? Thank's in advance for your answers.
Either is OK. A lot will depend on where you live. Here, in east Texas, we have a serious problem with rabies in skunks. There have been numerous reports of skunks that were subsequently tested positive for rabies actually climbing into fences and attacking dogs. I wouldn't be comfortable waiting until my pup was 6 months old to protect him/her from this disease.
